Our topics for the autumn term are Childhood and Our Wonderful World
Can you remember being small? Being a baby and learning to crawl? Do you recall a favourite toy, maybe a teddy bear or a favourite book? Look back at family photos of special occasions, perhaps holiday snapshots or a birthday or two. Remember a wedding or a christening and find a funny photo of your parents when they were young. Learn how to write a diary of days gone by and find out about the days before you were born: it’s called history and it’s all about the past. Find out about everyday life and families today, including comparisons with childhood in the 1950s, using artefacts and a range of different sources.
This essential skills and knowledge project teaches children about physical and human features, maps, cardinal compass points, and positional and directional language. They will learn about the equator, hemispheres and continents and are introduced to the countries, capital cities and settlements of the United Kingdom. The children will carry out simple fieldwork to find out about local physical and human features found around our school.
